OTCH Note: Postscript pasted on to inside front cover. Text begins: "Since this book was printed, the Rev. Canon Silivano Wani [Silvanus Go Wani] has been consecrated as Bishop -- A.I.M.'s first African Bishop from West Nile. This historic event took place in St. Paul's Cathedral, Namirembe, Kampala, on Sunday, June 7th, 1964."
"The Board for Social Responsibility inaugurates, from time to time, serious studies of difficult social questions. The present study, on the medical termination of pregnancy, takes its place in a series which has included `Ought Suicide to be a Crime ?' (1959), `Artificial Insemination by Donor' (1960), `Sterilization : An Ethical Enquiry' (1962), and `Decisions about Life and Death' (1965). .... Like all the studies in this series, the Report carries with it no authority beyond that of the group which has created it. This authority is indeed weighty enough in itself, but it would become less so if it were presented as already carrying some ecclesiastical authority, when it is intended to help Christians and others to think rightly about an extremely difficult subject". -- Foreword.
